Chelsea fans deluded themselves into thinking Untied fans only like Mourinho because he is the manager. There are still MANY United fans that still dislike Mourinho even though he is the manager. There are also many United fans that have liked Mourinho because he has always respected SAF and the club, and also masterminded the Gerrard Slip game. In the first season after SAF retires Liverpool are genuine title contenders and are very close to securing their first premiere league title ever. That game and celebration made Mourinho much more likeable to United fans.
